McDonald's fries back on the menu in all sizes in #Japan
TOKYO (Reuters) - McDonald's customers in Japan will be able to order french fries in all sizes again from next month, after the fast-food chain limited sales to small servings because of import delays. McDonald's Holdings Co (Japan) said on Friday it will resume sales of medium- and large-size french fries on Jan 5, as it has secured enough inventory thanks to emergency measures. The company, owned 49.9 per cent by McDonald's Corp, began restricting serving sizes on Dec 17 after a labour dispute at United States West Coast ports led to delays in imports. As an emergency step, McDonald's Japan said earlier this month that it was importing over 1,000 tonnes of frozen fries by air, and another 1,600 tonnes by ship from ports on the US.East Coast.
